Congratulations to this week’s poetry prompt winner, Monique Shante! Her blog explores flash fiction and poetry (but her About Me page is a must-read of 25 fascinating facts)…and her response to the challenge, “Create a Book Spine Poem by layering titles to make a meaningful statement” celebrates all things literary.
Following is her original poem, How Fiction Works:
How fiction works:
Invisible man playing in the dark
Kicking tongues just above my head–
The art of the story!
How Fiction Works by James Wood
Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison
Playing in the Dark by Toni Morrison
Kicking Tongues by Karen King-Aribisala
Just Above My Head by James Baldwin
The Art of the Story by Daniel Halpern
